We Almost Lost Gordon Ramsay

July 29, 2008 / Posted by:

The always sunny Gordon Ramsay almost met his maker (Satan) after he fell off of a cliff in Iceland while filming his show, “The F Word.

Gordon told The Sun that he fell from a 28-foot cliff and landed in icy cold water. He said, “I remember thinking, ‘Oh fuck’. My boots and my waterproofs were dragging me down. I’m an extremely good swimmer, but I couldn’t get to the surface. I was panicking and my lungs were filling with water. When I got to the top after getting my boots off I was dazed and my head was totally numb.”

Gordon’s crew pulled him back up with a rope. He only had a cut on his leg.

Falling off a cliff wasn’t his only brush with death. Gordon was in Iceland to hunt poor, little puffins for his show. One of the puffins bit his nose which required three stitches. The puffin should have aimed lower.

Gordon defended his decision to hunt them, “We had a license to cull 1,000. I didn’t realize how difficult they are to cook, but they’re very tasty!

The next time Gordon is in Iceland, the puffins should push him from a higher cliff.
